8-3, 16-9: Argument Over

Another late post ands Monday is already a distant memory. I worked in Metairie as usual and went to IT ethics class this evening. I had a case study to discuss this evening. It was mostly about CompuServe Germany getting pounced back in ’97 for hosting kiddie porn on Usenet servers. I can’t immediately recall what the lecture was about.On to Tuesday. After a work day in Mid City in which Dad was out of the office half the time, we went out to Zephyr Field for the ‘rematch’ of Tulane and LSU’s baseball teams. Earlier in the season, Tulane beat LSU in Baton Rouge 8-3.Although a comparatively small crowd was expected, attendance was 9,318, which filled out the park quite nicely. By the fifth inning, however, LSU fans started to leave and the audience thinned out a bit.There was a lot of scoring in this game, which I have no desire to recap, but I’ve included an accompanying news story [ext] to cover the details. Generally speaking, it was a slugfest and nearly a blowout for Tulane. By the end of the third inning, it was 10-0 Tulane. To LSU’s credit, they did mount a bit of a come back to keep the game interesting. They scored three in the fourth and six in the seventh, getting as close as 13-9. Tulane pulled further ahead in the bottom of the eighth with three more runs. The final score was 16-9.Although Tulane made some mistakes, the game was still very entertaining. Tulane got 22 hits. Each started had at least two, including 4 of 6 for Warren McFadden. It’s always sweet to beat LSU and this was no different. It was well after ten when the 3:40 game ended. Dad and I got home around 11.The EF 70-200mm F/4L lens I ordered came in the mail today so I played around with that a bit before bed. It does overwhelm the camera a bit so I’ll be getting the vertical grip.
